4NCL Division 3 2013-14: e2e4.org.uk 2 – Iceni 1

In contrast to the match on Saturday, e2e4.org.uk 2 won their Sunday match against Iceni 1 comfortably 4.5-1.5. I was paired against Paul Botham, whom I had previously faced back in 1995 at the Islington Major! I managed to surprise him in the opening, and when the complication had settled by move 20, I had a comfortable positional advantage. Following a miscalculation, he allowed my d-pawn to be pushed through to the queening square, and promptly resigned.

I give the game below with some notes.
